In a world where today you search for one thing over the web and tomorrow you get a ton of related ads and purchase suggestions, privacy is a serious concern. If you don’t do something about it, your internet browser will memorize by default your searches and know everything on what you did and what you’re interested in. All that can change with the Incognito Mode, a special privacy option.
Once you activate the Incognito Mode on Samsung Note 9 and Note 8, you can be sure that your search queries, your viewing history, your login credentials and all your activity – except for the cookies – will NO longer be stored! Call it a kill switch, if you want, the point is that nothing will be remembered from what you view or click on.
When you need some privacy, turn on the Incognito Mode on Samsung Note 9 and Note 8:
- Unlock the device;
- Go to the Home screen and launch the internet browser;
- Access the menu of the Google Chrome browser by tapping the 3-dot icon;
- Look for the New Incognito Tab option that should be listed in there;
- You should see a new black screen expanding on the display and a notification that informs you that nothing from what you search will be remembered.
These were the instructions on how to use the Incognito Mode on Samsung Note 9 and Note 8 when you have the Chrome browser or stock Internet app. Nevertheless, the Google Play Store will offer you a generous selection of third-party internet browsers that give you this kind of privacy by default.
You must have heard people talking about Dolphin Zero, which is a good alternative to the Chrome and you should definitely give it a chance. But don’t ignore the apps like the Opera Browser either, with its built-in browser-wide privacy mode, very easy to activate.
